The workshop:
This one-day training will focus on clinical skills working with couples after betrayal such as affairs, lies, and secrets. The rate of infidelity is high amongst couples. More and more couples seek therapy after the discovery of an affair, lies or significant secrets. Facing betrayal provokes enormous emotion upset which can be difficult for therapists to hold. This training will be interactive, offering both theories and time to practice with case studies.

On this training you will learn:

  1. Essential knowledge on the psychological impact of betrayal on intimate relationships
  2. How to assess both the betrayer and betrayed
  3. Interventions to help couples move through betrayal
  4. Explore common ethical dilemmas
  5. Therapist’s bias/ blind spots on the subjects of intimate relationships and betrayal
